Dave Hakkens

Dave Hakkens is a designer/maker and part of the Pecha Kucha at Design Indaba Conference 2014.

Dave Hakkens, a 25-year-old designer from the Netherlands, lives and works in a place called Helmond. He graduated cum laude from the Design Academy last year and a couple of years before from Sintlucas. Although he is trained as an industrial designer he also loves to build machinery and videos.

His goal is simple: "Try to make the world better by making things.” Whether it's an inspirational video, machines to recycle plastic or a phone concept, it doesn’t really matter. As long as it might push the world in a better direction. 

I simply try to make the world better by making things.
